B'ville never got close again as Elmer, who would finish the night with six assists, offered timely passes to Collins and Martin for goals in the latter stages. Jaclyn Hingre added a late goal for B’ville, but it was far from enough.
The Bees not get tripped up in the days leading up to West Genesee, defending home turf last Tuesday night in a 14-3 romp over Oswego.
Coming off its own close call (a 10-9 victory over Cicero-North Syracuse on April 19 not decided until the waning seconds), the Bees had no intention of letting the Buccaneers get involved, bolting out to a 10-1 lead by halftime and cruising through the rest of the game.
Kennedy Frink, in particular, had a big night, dishing out a career-best seven assists to go with her three goals. Frink’s passes went to, among others, senior co-captains Sarah Klaben and Amari Pollard, who also had three-goal hat tricks.
Taylor Gebhardt scored twice, while Kylie Scott, Natalie Kaufman and Jackie Gould put up one goal apiece and Stephanie Roberts added an assist. Nicole Burrows had a superb performance in the net, finshing with 10 saves.
With the loss to WG, B’ville could now turn toward a deluge of nine remaining games in a span of just 16 days, starting with four games in six days this week. The Bees would host reigning Class B champion CBA on Monday night and venture to Fayetteville-Manlius on Saturday, with a trip to Central Square and a home game against Auburn in between.
